Hi there, Sugar Bee Crafts readers! I'm Jen, and I blog over at My Own Road. I'm so glad to be guest posting today, thanks for having me, Mandy! When I'm not working or chasing after two kids under three, you can usually find me neglecting housework to sew instead. On my blog, I like to share easy, inexpensive projects that usually involve recycling materials I have on hand because I'mSupplies:
cheap inventive :)
- Knit fabric for the hat
- Knit fabric for the cuff
- Small scrap of felt for the leaf
- Needle and embroidery floss
- Fabric glue
- Basic sewing supplies
Step 2: Cut out your pattern pieces. Use your pattern to trace and cut out two hat pieces from your knit fabric.
Step 3: Attach your hat and cuff pieces. With one of your hat pieces facing right side up, fold one cuffs with the wrong sides together and pin the raw edge of your cuff to the raw edge of the hat (see below.) The folded part of the cuff should be facing up. Sew straight across the cuff using 1/4 inch seam allowance.
Step 4: Make your leaf. Cut two leaves from some craft felt. Use a disappearing ink marker to draw the veins on one of the leaves.
Step 5: Finish your hat. Place your two hat pieces right sides together and pin. Insert your felt leaf near the base of the knot and pin in place. Sew to join the two pieces. (You can finish the edges by zig-zagging or serging them, but since knit fabric doesn't fray, I didn't bother to.)
Turn your hat inside out and use a skewer to push out any corners. Tie a knot at the top to make your acorn stem, and there you have it!
